Liverpool defender Andrew Robertson was quick to express his admiration for the performance of Divock Origi in the Merseyside derby on Wednesday night following the Belgian’s two goals at Anfield.
Within minutes of the final whistle, the Scotland left-back took to his Twitter account @andrewrobertso5 to post three images – a blurry photo of a goat, one of glasses being cleaned and a clear image of Origi, presumably insinuating that he was calling his team-mate the greatest of all time (of which GOAT is an acronym).
He just loves a big game doesn’t he pic.twitter.com/ZDwnodZqFE

The 24-year-old Belgian maintained his excellent record against Everton with a brace on Wednesday night, which took him to five goals in six Merseyside derby appearances.
Origi has scored more against the Toffees than any other club during his career, with Southampton his next favourite opponents having netted three times against them. [via TransferMarkt]
These Liverpool fans lapped up Robertson’s humorous tweet about the Belgian, with some joking that he had it well prepared in anticipation of more goals from Origi:

Football without Origi would be like twitter without Robbo – hollow and worthless
